(Viburnum) After being away for a couple years, Old Miners Day in Viburnum will return this year.
The celebration to remember the lead mining heritage in southeast Missouri will be rolled together into one big day of fun on Saturday, October 1st.
Music from local singers and musicians has always been a part of this festival and that tradition will continue this year.
Steve Setzer of Dillard has a family of musicians.
They will be entertaining the crowd.
Steve’s granddaughter, Navy Setzer, who still attends Viburnum High School, may be the biggest musical talent in the Setzer family.
We asked Steve if Navy could be the listening areas first big female breakout artist, like Perryville’s Chris Janson who pulled off that feat a few years ago.
Other musical performers at Old Miners Day in Viburnum on Saturday, October 1st include the Viburnum High School Jazz Band, Mike Morton will sing the National Anthem, Martha Mathes will sing, Lena Medley and Anna Edgar will perform.
Also singing…The Coleman Family, The Major Family, Kevin and Kim Abney and many more.
